I started a new one last Saturday, and it's coming along good. I had a near disaster with the drum sander but was able to save it. I saved it so well I wouldn't hesitate to sell it but I'm going to keep this one for myself. It'll be a rosewood / spruce soprano with an alder neck. And bar frets because I'm such a hard ass dude.

Nice save, Sir! Looking good, and glad you're "treating" yourself. I look forward to seeing the "hard ass" fret work. :)

Ha ha, I'll show you the frets when I get home from Yerevan. Day job getting in the way of the hobby once more.

Another case of work ruining a perfectly good life

I've put together a blog post about the bar frets. A little bit more work than regular fretwire but actually not too bad.

Looks like a beauty Sven, and thank you for the kind Koa offer. I think I have found a set.
